The woman charged in connection with the theft of Lady Gaga's French Bulldogs, says Lady Gaga never delivered on her promised $500,000 reward and now she's suing.
The woman said Lady Gaga made it very clear, that she would pay the $500k "no questions asked" when she announced the reward back in February 2021 after her dogs Koji and Gustav were stolen from her dog walker at gunpoint.
The woman returned the dogs to Lady Gaga at the LAPD Olympic Community station on February 26th, 2 days after they were taken.
The woman was charged in connection to the theft with receiving stolen property and being an accessory to the crime after the fact. She later pled no contest to one count of receiving stolen property and got 2 years probation.
Not only does the woman want the $500,000, she wants the court to triple the damages to $1.5 million for allegedly posting the misleading reward.
The L.A. County Deputy District Attorney said the woman was more than aware the dogs were stolen when she returned them in hopes of obtaining the reward, and had known the men involved in the shooting for years.
The woman is still on probation, and if Lady Gaga suffered any sort of financial loss, the people could seek financial restitution from the woman.
